    hey looking good.
    one quick guestion, do you need to modify the psu mount? heard that people have had problems fitting the psu in that case, especially modular ones.

    I wasn't clear, to me, were you able to mount the both 240mm radiators without any mods?

    Now for todays update!
    I did not do a lot today, but it was much needed for my build and the whole theme ...
    Today I prepared some details from the chassis before the paint began to watersand the metal parts which went very well but quickly... however the plastic front with the soft-touch finish on the took some time... luckily I already knew how to to 100% remove all the paint as it rises if you paint over it. I then got even a little time left over at the end out the day and drove out my newly painted VW Golf MKII out from the paint booth and ran into the details for paint...
    I then went up to our color cabinet and began looking for a dark gray 2K varnish on Stansox's color database ...It didnt went as good as expected, I could not find the color I was looking for. The color I wanted is the MDPC-X Shade 19, which im going to sleeve the psu with.
    I then started mixing my own costumcolor and after about 5-6 minute I got 98% out of the same color as the sleeve and then walked myself down to paint sprayguns and began to mix the paint with thinner and hardener, I sadly dont have pictures when painting the parts :/

    Now on to some pictures, taken with my Sensation XE :/

    Theese case details will be paintes:
    -The front panel (the base of the frontpanel)
    -The 240mm Mesh on the top
    -The motherboard plate
    -The PSU Bracket

    [​IMG]

    The color looks a little bit foggy, this is due to the quick drying thinner who simply does it job :)

    Took them out to the outside for a little moment (better light)

    After about 2 hours or so the paint had hardened (cured) completely, i the took the painted details with caution and test fitted them, looks totaly great if i can say so!

    I hope you appreciated the update so far :)

    On this we all make comments at different times. I think this is a beautiful case and looks easy to work on. You have managed to get some great sponsors and very nice gear congratz on that. I didn't see a lot to make suggestions on. I do want you to know that just because you dont have 200 comments does not mean we are not watching with anticipation to see what you create or what you do next. I love to look through all the build logs but I dont comment on them until I feel that I can contribute something. Your pictures do look good, and I look forward to see how you are going to fit all that stuff in that little case and still make an efficient loop to cool that thing. And now a question are you just going to make 1 loop or are you going to make 2 or 3? I think it would look good with multiple loops and different color coolant in each but it would cost a bit more money for pumps and all.

    Keep up the good work and we are all watching!
